house democratic leader nancy pelosi to the podium to present a mementos you will all receive as you leave the statuary hall . >> thank you very much, mr. chairman schumer, and cochair alexander wonderful inauguration. mr. vice-president, mr. president, first lady, first lady, first lady -- [laughter] dr. biden, all of our distinguished guests. i will tell you about a gift for you. freedom now stands on the dome of the capitol of the united states. may she stand there forever not only in form, but in spirit. those were the words expressed 150 years ago by the commissioner of public buildings as the statue of freedom was placed atop the capitol during the presidency of president lincoln. that expression of the spirit of freedom is what we want you to take with you today, and it is contained in this portfolio that you will receive from the joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies, along with a frame depiction of the capitol as it appeared at the start of the civil war. you heard it well described by chairman schumer in his remarks. today the statue of freedom and the spiri
think what i'm hearing from nancy pelosi and also ed lee and gene quan is they want to see law enforcement officials, sheriffs, police chiefs and police cops on the street. people who have more credibility. people who buy guns to protect the public, essentially, to be really front and center in this debate because they feel that those constituencies can be more effective in talking to republicans. i mean, let's face it, oakland, san francisco, all the bay area delegation is going to be for gun control legislation. whether it's the assault ban or background checks or anything else. but i think something -- some new voices need to come forward and really be mobilized behind the president in order to move some of these republican votes and democrats in tough districts. >> so, scott, serious issues aside, i mean, let's not forget there's an inauguration happening as well in washington. taking place really amid much history. it's the 50th anniversary of the "i have a dream" speech by dr. martin luther king. it's also on martin luther king holiday. what's the mood there in washington
, it is a difference, but look at the house. we have nancy pelosi as the leader, and although, boehner is the republican speaker, but all of us view nancy pelosi as the democratic speaker and look at the leader show has been. she is very strong, and very forceful, but she is still a le leader that brings everybody together. and boehner career clearly -- boehner clearly has been unable to do that. but ideology is different so you cannot just describe the women to behave in that way, so it is gender, but also ideology. >> and with the cross cut, mrs. edelman, what is the thing that you would ask the 113th congress to do relative to the policy immediately on children's poverty issues? >> we have to have a jobs program and we have to have the strong early childhood system that includes comprehensive child care to help people work and not sacrifice their children and we have to begin to break in and prevent and intervene early and karen has gotten something through to help foster care children, but we have to have a get a first rate quality system to foster children, and break this cycle of
democrats including nancy pelosi say, no way, there is more revenue can come from this wealthy group. one of them is high-profile golfer looking to evade all of this apparently. >> the news broke this morning. talking about phil mickelson. he is california-based and he has had it with taxes. he says he is going to take dressic action because his tax rate is 62 or 6%. in other words he loses 63 cents on every dollar when you combine higher taxes he has to pay at the federal level with the much higher taxes he has to pay at the california state level. he says he has had enough. we think he is thinking about leaving california. martha: really? wonder where he is going to go? >> texas. martha: lot of choices. texas might be a good one. >> florida. martha: stuart, thank you very much, stuart. he will be a snowbird. bill: good for phil. i overdressed by the way. martha: you're feeling little warm? bill: i'm starting, i'm obsessed --. martha: we're prepared for sking. bill: we heeded the warnings. listened to our people in the weather center. martha: are you blaming them now? bill: absolutely nu
the majority and have nancy pelosi write that bill. there are no other choices. these numbers are changing, just like the demographics are changing. you know, mitt romney got the same percentage of white voters that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress,
died in the 2011 two don, arizona shooting. house minority leader nancy pelosi is also scheduled to attend. that will be live this afternoon starting at 2:00 eastern here on c-span. on this morning's "washington journal," we were joined by house judiciary committee chair, bob goodlatte, who discussed the debate over guns laws. host: welcome back to the table, bob goodlatte, chairman of the house judiciary committee committee. thank you very much for talking to our viewers this morning. guest: thank you. good to be with you and the viewers. host: the president will speak at 11:45 and put forward what he would like to see happen on gun control. what are your thoughts? guest: first of all we are interested in what the vice president's commission and the president propose and we'll take a serious look at anything that they put on the table. we are also very mindful of the fact that there is a second amendment, constitutional right, to keep and bear arms and that that right was only recently found by the united states supreme court to very clearly extend to individual civilians and th
. pretty negative response from nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house. this pros poll sas, she says, does not relieve the uncertainty faced by the middle class. this is a gimmick unworthy of the challenges we face and the national debate we should be having. the message for the american people is clear, no gauges, no default. is there a lack of coordination in the response between pelosi and the white house? >> look, i think both sides are true. it's positive that the republicans and the congress are backing off of that threat. it's also true that we can't go in three-month increments having a debate about whether we're going to pay our bills and whether we're going to jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united states of america. we need to work this through, find a long-term solution for this and bring some certainty to the economy. >> i'm not sure i'd say it's an entirely positive statement from the white house saying that, gee, republicans need to stop holding a gun to americans' head. that's true. but of course that's not what is happening. we've spent the money and
elections elections, no, you don't. two elections ago, we get routed by nancy pelosi. >> let's get to a break. we have a lot ahead. don't forget to share your photos of today's inauguration. you can find us on twitter. send us everything. we want to see it. still ahead this morning, live from the dubliner retired general colin powell valerie jarrett, nbc's tom brokaw "hardball's" chris matthews and presidential historian doris kerns goodwin. >>> up next, the political playbook -- oh my gosh, the line. the political playbook with jim. first, bill karins is here with a check on the forecast. bill. >> mika this crowd, once again, you won't believe how long this line is. so many wonderful people out here. you came all the way from the bahamas, and you did it four years ago too. >> i did it four years ago. >> very impressive. from virginia maryland. you two both work in the navy. you're from? >> california. >> and you're from? >> ohio. i worked on the campaign. >> both times or just the last year? >> just this last year. >> good job. i think it worked. >> a little bit. >>
